Explore the EmiratesUnited Arab Emirates
Strikingly modern and warmly traditional, the United Arab Emirates has everything you could want in a holiday destination. You can experience the very height of cosmopolitan luxury or hike wilderness areas alone. UAE has it all.
The United Arab Emirates, in spite of its small size, is a greatly diversified country. It is a melting pot of cultures and people from around the Arabian Peninsula and from across the seas. It is also a very young country – formed in 1971! Before the riches from oil, the main cities of the UAE were hardly more than tiny villages. Now, these centers of government and trade can boast skylines to rival those of European and American cities.
Each of the country’s cities has a different flavor: from cosmopolitan seat of government or buzzing trade hub, to elegant and traditional. All are within a short distance from each other, but offer the visitor a kaleidoscope of variety in sites, sounds, and activities. The UAE welcomes visitors with open arms and will definitely be a joy to any who wish to experience this young and warm-hearted country.
We offer a variety of options for tours and travel to the United Arab Emirates. You can also combine a tour with Oman to see more of the Arabian Peninsula.
